The 34-year-old's deal also includes provision for a further year's extension which will kick once he reaches a set number of appearances.

Teale was in-and-out of the side at the start of the season but won his place back and went on to play a key role in January's League Cup success.

Speaking a few days before his deal was confirmed, the 2011 free transfer said: "I hoped things would change and fortunately enough they did and now I am enjoying it.

"No matter what age you are, after training in the week, you want to play on the Saturday. I didn't have that for a wee while and it was very frustrating. So to get back in the side was great.

"I'm happy to be getting a new deal and hopefully with the option, it will be for two years."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
